Full Description
My approach is simple: I work with my couples as actual human beings to create images that reflect their personalities – not just an artificial ‘version’ of what you both look like when you’re told to look a certain way. This unique approach takes all the awkwardness out of portraits + is perfect for couples who are camera shy or prefer natural wedding photography. Although I am unobtrusive, I prefer to interact with your day as a guest rather than a formal ‘official photographer’. This makes me more approachable to your friends + family + means I can get involved with your day with them to create photography that’s candid, story telling + full of your guests authentic expressions. This means that my work avoids ‘posing’ + instead focuses on creating a ‘space’ where you, your friends + families feel that they can continue being themselves in front of camera. In an age where everything is polished + perfected – I believe that (now, more than ever) people relate to an ‘energy’ in photographs – rather than the basic aesthetic. I definitely still offer family photos + portraits but they are photographed in a way that accentuates + represents the personalities of people in the photo, instead of boring, stiff, rigid photos which somehow still exist. My work has been published on Rock My Wedding, Love My Dress, Rock ’n’ Roll Bride, Green Wedding Shoes, Junebug, + Buzzfeed. I have also won Wedding Ideas Magazine’s “Best Wedding Photographer” award + often work with them to create awesome photos.

Our wedding photos from Chris are so FULL OF LIFE
Our wedding photos from Chris are so FULL OF LIFE that viewing them is more than looking at pictures, a quick trip to the parents with the USB became a 2hr+ visit with stories and laughter and ACTUAL memories! Chris has a wonderful ability to fit in with people you’ve known your whole life and make it seem like he’s always been there. Our experience so exceeded any expectations we had we cannot recommend him highly enough. Chris, thank you for being an actual human being and culling the unflattering photos and for making us laugh and helping us be ourselves on our wedding day. You truly helped make it the incredible day that it was!

He made a photo phobic like me feel at ease
Honestly the nicest, funniest and most talented photographer I have ever seen and met! He made a photo phobic like me feel at ease and actually enjoy having my picture taken (no easy task I can tell you!) And the work he produces is simply amazing! The best decision you will ever make for your wedding day, would be to book Chris! Can't thank him enough for our pictures and for his help on the day itself.

full of energy + perfectly capture the personality
“After hours of searching for wedding photographers in London started to think that we wouldn’t find our photographer. Then Chris’ work appeared. It is full of fun, happy faces and everyone always looks like they’re having the BEST time in his photos. We’re kind of awkward and much prefer taking photos than being in them so wanted someone who didn’t take loads of posed photos + Chris totally nailed it. We barely knew he was taking our photo – even during our portraits. We spent the whole time with him in hysterics and he actually made the whole process (dare I say it?!)…ENJOYABLE?! The photos are full of energy and perfectly capture the personalities of our friends and family. We’re over the moon”

Everything has been beyond our wildest dreams
“Where do you even start with Chris Barber!? Argue with myself to decide what’s better… him or his photos! Chris you are simply amazing! We could not have asked for a nicer, more talented photographer to capture our wedding day, and my goodness did you capture everything about our day perfectly. We cannot get enough of our fun wedding photos, and pre-wedding shoot pics. Everything has been beyond our wildest dreams. Can we get married again just so we can hang out with you again!? Thanks so much Chris!”
